The Return of The Tower of Flower Power:



Ok sports fans and Flower Fanatics! The Tower of Flower Power is officially available for playing Saturday. (and there was much rejoicing) PP.com, The Trib, and PPG all carrying the story that we've been waiting so long to hear. Due to some FSN babble last night the supposition is now that Marc Andre Fleury's 'undisclosed' is in fact a groin injury. (I could guess at the type, but wouldn't want to offend any groins out there) Mad Maximus's 'undisclosed' is hurting now (Jeeze, will it never end?) Curry, who's done a fine job backing up Sabu, and Chris Minard, who showed some flash at times, have been dealt back to the Baby Pens. But break out the Fleur Des Li's, and the French Fries (I was stuck for something French that was good) because MAF is back in the lineup. HT Michel Therrien is doing a line up version on 'undisclosed' so there is no word as to whether or not The Flower will play Sat., but at least he'll dress up in his goalie suit.

In case you've been living under a rock (and if you have, get the hell out of there) two Penguins who've never scored a hat trick did so during the Isles game on Thursday, Petr Sykora (Syko), who's had 44, 2 goal games but never an HT and Pascal Dupuis, (YM&D) each scored three goals in a nearly embarassing 9-2 win. (that kind of embarrassment I can live with.) Phillipe Boucher also had a first that night, scoring his first goal as a Pen. I'm not only glad it happened for them, but it's better that it happened at home, where they get the hats thrown. According to Stogie, the hats collected from Syko's HT were collected as usual, but placed in Syko's locker so he could take them home, I guess. I'd set up a hat-cannon/air gun, that way any time I was down or in a slump I could hit a switch and hats would rain down, this would make me feel the opposite of shame. (I know, it's strange, but so am I) I don't know about anyone else, but I was amazed when the second period ended, because I thought the game was over. There was so much scoring in the first two periods that I couldn't imagine what else could happen. (but I kept watching anyway)

YES!
i missed fleury!

too bad burry can't be the backup. no offense to sabourin, but i just think curry's a better goalie.

wore the fleury jersey to school yesterday..screamed WOOOOOO! in the hallways probably 3+ times. My friend and me made a cake in the shape of a fleur-de-lis (i have no clue how to spell that..) and now im heading off to relatives(sadly their FILTH-adlephia fans) to watch the game.

As much as I want to see fleury back, he should sit this one, its like 4 days until the next game which is good conditioning time and we dont want to pull a Luongo where he left 20 minutes into practice.

GO PENS WOOOOOOOOOOOOO

It's spelled Fleur de Lis, or Fleur de Lys, either way it's pronounced the same. Penguin shirts need to be seen more in schools, it says good things about the intelligence of todays students. After the whacking that Sabu got today in Philthy-delphia it's likely that Flower will play Thurs in Atlanta, but with HCMT you never know. Jill, all I can tell you is the old saying: God picks your relatives, thank God you can pick your friends. I'm not saying they're bad people because they're Philthy phans, but I'm not, not saying it either... lol

It's something that surprised me the day I heard it... I would have never imagined Doritos might be the one who spent more money on ads on the Super Bowl day!!! the logic told me it had to be Coca-Cola or Mcdonald's... not Doritos!
